For Whirlpool Dryer Heating Element Kit (Part Number: AP4242494)

Answer or Comment

My Admiral dryer suddenly stopped heating on both cycles. It worked one day, and quit the next. Tub turns fine and cycles run fine, just no heat. Last time I used kit AP 4242494 to replace the hi-limit thermostat and heating element to fix it. Would you still recommend this, and is there a fuse I should order with it? Thanks for your help...Joe

ANSWER Hello Joe. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff and that you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
